Possible Changes to Leaf Pickup
City officials are considering changing the way bulk leaf collection will be done in the future. Because of delays made to the pickup program this year after a late November snowstorm, the city is looking into completing a cost-benefit analysis of using garbage trucks to help. That’s also due to the wear and tear much of the equipment used to collect leaves from the street is showing. The city apologized for delays in the third collection cycle after the snowstorm, and finished a week later than planned, with the assistance of garbage trucks.
District 203 Passes Tax Levy
The District 203 school board passed its 2018 Tax Levy last night. The levy has been extended to $247,300,000, with the plans to make abatements in the spring. This could save the average homeowner of a $410,000 home about $133. The Board will be asked to make the final decision regarding the abatement at the March 4, 2019 board meeting, once the District has more information about state and future local funding and the impact of any funding changes.
Metea Theater Alumni
It was a night to remember for Metea Valley theater alumni. The program celebrated its 10-year anniversary last night by inviting past performers back to the stage to sing some of the same tunes they sang when they were in high school. From its humble beginnings performing in the school’s cafeteria, the theater program has come a long way. Those in attendance heard from some musical classics like “Bye Bye Birdie” and some modern stories like “Shrek The Musical,” which made it a special night for all.
